Lace Knitted Scarf

I am in love with Lace knitting right now and this has been an ongoing project for quite a while.

This is a free pattern by PurlSoho and it is called the wedding shawl. It is super nice. I like that it was challenging as a beginner  to lace knitting initially but after a few repeats I could memorize it.

Materials:

Alpaca with a Twist Socrates fingering weight yarn

Size 2 circular knitting needles.

This needed a nice blocking session to show off all the lace.

Enjoy and have a great weekend.

Knitted stripes Baby blanket No. 3

Here is my latest knitted stripes baby blanket in gender neutral colors. I love these colors together with the mild green and the pop of purple.

I used the random stripe generator for this. I really like it as a tool to see how the colors go together. I frequently play around with it for color inspirations and to get a visual of the blanket.

Here is the link to the pattern. I have made two such blankets earlier in yellow and grey and blue and red. I do really enjoy this pattern and with the updates in it, it looks even better. However, blocking is essential for this blanket to really show the stitches.

Circular needles

Staggered Chevron Baby Blanket

Hello fellow crafters,

Here is my latest staggered chevron blanket. I absolutely love this free pattern I found on Ravelry. This is a new pattern and this is the first time I’m trying it and I already love it and I can see this being made like a billion times in the future.

This time I used a blue gradient and a contrast of yellow but you can easily just make it using a bunch of different combinations and stagger the chevrons as you want.

Materials:

Caron simply soft in the colors. White, Lemonade, Robin’s Egg, Blue Mint, Ocean.

Finished dimensions: 27”X 30”

Edging: Since these are baby boy colors the edging need to be less frilly so I did a simple double crochet and one round of reverse single crochet.

This blanket is now available on etsy. Check it out.

Thanks a lot for stopping by. Another big crochet project just got done so it is coming soon right here.
